Faversham walking: School resources
 

              School field trip resources  


Welcome to the Faversham Food Trails schools resource page.

Faversham is one of Kent’s leading destinations for both walkers and those wishing to savour an area with a high reputation for food and drink. We have constructed a variety of online resource packs to help schools make the most of this rewarding combination.

Each of our eight circular Faversham Food Trails is uniquely studded with great local food and drink, from growing and processing to cooking and serving. They showcase the best of local Kent produce and offer an all-round host of experiences and discoveries for pupils.

While routes are over terrain suitable for children of all ages, for primary schools we have developed versions of the walks covering a shorter section of each. One of the packs is based in a single location. The packs are supported by resource materials for use by teachers on the walks and back in the classroom.

All walks have drop off points and parking nearby and have toilet and picnic stops.

 

Primary Schools

We have produced shorter versions, up to one to one-and-a-half miles in length, for each walk; these are for half-day field trips.

The majority of walks either use footpaths or quiet country lanes so they are safe to walk with groups of children. We have also suggested picnic spots in case you and your pupils wish to bring packed lunches.

Trips for each walk are activity-based and have been created to link into Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum focusing on numeracy, literacy, geography, history, science and art and design.

You will find a list of core subjects covered is highlighted in the resource sheet for each field trip.

While each resource is designed for a half-day trip, activities outlined can be carried out in the classroom as well as on the walk, so you can continue to refer to the field trip in classroom teaching long after you and your students have enjoyed the walk.

Secondary Schools

Our eight featured walks vary in length from 5¼ to 11 miles. You can choose to walk a shorter section of each one if you prefer and there are shorter, off-shoot loops on some. The majority of walks follow footpaths or quiet country lanes so are safe for groups.

Information about the walks will allow you to bring each one to life with your students through exploration of local food and drink, environment, wildlife and heritage. The walks can be used to supplement teaching across a wide range of subject areas and as part of enrichment activities.

You can also use the walks in connection with activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver Awards or with fund raising activities such as sponsored walks.
